Learning & Support (LaST)

The Learning and Support Team at Busby Public School is fundamental in ensuring the success of all students, and in particular those with disabilities and additional learning and support needs.

The amazing LST team at Busby Public School consists of:

  • Assistant Principals - Curriculum and Instruction
  • Learning and Support Teacher(s)
  • An Aboriginal Education Officer
  • School Learning Support Officers
  • Wellbeing Nurse
  • School Psychologist

They have an enormous job at the school. They facilitate and coordinate whole school approaches to improving the learning outcomes for all students, coordinate planning processes and resources for students with disabilities and additional learning and support needs, design and implement the support required to build teacher capacity so that all students can access quality learning, and develop collaborative partnerships with the school, parents and carers, other professionals and the wider school community.

Mrs. Catherine McKay and Mrs Monika Walker are our Assistant Principals - Curriculum and Instruction at Busby. They mainly work with the teachers in our school to help them build and improve their knowledge of the NSW curriculum. They also model lessons and provide resources for the teachers each week in order to support them in implementing exemplary content rich teaching and learning experiences. In this photo, Mrs Mckay is modelling to stage 2 students how to organise the information in their plan into subcategories to allow for easy paragraph writing. 

Our Learning and Support teachers work across K-6 supporting, students in literacy and numeracy.

Meet our new Wellbeing Nurse - Chentel

Chentel is a Clinical Nurse Specialist employed by NSW Health who will be working across our school and with our learning & support team. She is here to help connect students and families with health and community services. She can support students and families with health assessments and make referrals to a community, medical or social service. This is not a First Aid or Mental Health Nurse position.

Chentel is available at Busby Public School every Monday. If you would like any more information or to speak to Chentel, please contact the front office. 

Aboriginal Education Officers provide assistance to teachers, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students and their families to support improved learning, welfare and well-being outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students.

Mrs. Patricia Daniel is our Aboriginal Education Officer at Busby Public School. She provides the Indigenous students, and their families lots of support. She is absolutely awesome at organising lots of fun events and 'yarns' for us to attend. Some of these events include NAIDOC activities and Kindaimanna Day.
